I serve this pork roast often when I'm entertaining company. It's especially good with garden-fresh herbs, but dried work nicely as well. It makes a stunning presentation. —Michele Montgomery, Lethbridge, Alberta

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup minced chives
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh sage or 4 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2-3/4 teaspoons pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Starting about a third in from 1 side, make a lengthwise slit down the roast to within 1/2 in. of the bottom. Turn roast over and make another lengthwise slit, starting about a third in from the opposite side. Open roast so it lies flat; cover with plastic wrap. Flatten to 3/4-in. thickness; remove plastic wrap.
  2. Combine mustard and garlic; rub two-thirds of the mixture over roast. Combine the chives, sage, thyme, rosemary, 3/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle two-thirds of the herb mixture over roast. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; tie several times with kitchen string. Rub oil over roast; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper.
  3. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  4. Prepare grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place roast over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat or bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour.
  5. Brush remaining mustard mixture over roast; sprinkle with remaining herb mixture. Grill or bake until a thermometer reads 160°, 20-25 minutes longer. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
